|Saboteurs may have infiltrated into IAEA: Iran||
TEHRAN – Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Director Fereydoun Abbasi Davani has said that saboteurs and terrorists might have infiltrated into the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Abbasi made the remarks in an address to the annual member state gathering of the IAEA in Vienna on Monday.
According to Reuters, Abbasi said explosives had been used to cut power lines from the city of Qom to the Fordo uranium enrichment facility on August 17.
He went on to say that a day later IAEA inspectors asked for an unannounced visit to Fordo.
“Does this visit have any connection to that detonation? Who other than the IAEA inspectors can have access to the complex in such a short time?”
“It should be recalled that power cut-off is one of the ways to break down centrifuge machines,” he said.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Abbasi accused the IAEA of a cynical approach and mismanagement.
He said that the agency provides terrorists with information through publishing reports on Iran’s nuclear program.
Commenting on the assassination of a number of Iranian nuclear scientists and experts, Abbasi said that there have also been some efforts to assassinate Iran’s negotiators participating in the talks with the agency, but fortunately the efforts were thwarted by the timely actions of Iran’s Intelligence Ministry.
